DESCRIPTION:\n DUE TO THE COVID19 PANDEMIC THIS SCHOOL HAS BEEN CANCELLED.
\n --------------------- Original text purpose of the School -------------
---------\n This School will be held at the ICTP-East African Institute fo
r Fundamental Research [EAIFR] in Kigali\, Rwanda\; it will offer students
concrete and effective mathematical tools from algebra\, group theory and
geometry that can be applied to any scientific field.Description of Cours
es:\n \n Advanced linear algebra\n \n This goes beyond a first course
on the subject. Topics like Jordan normal form will be studied as well as
bilinear forms\, multilinear forms and tensor products\; \n Groups\, Co
unting and FFT \n \n We start with group theory via rotations in 3d space\
; this will be used in Pólya counting problems. We then moves on to chara
cter theory culminating in fast Fourier transform\; \n Introduction to
Lie Algebras\n \n The course introduces Lie algebras and aims towards of t
he classification of semisimple Lie algebras which is widely considered
one of the most elegant results in mathematics\; \n Modular forms\n \n
The course introduces modular forms. We will study many concrete examples
\, like the Eisenstein series\, from which we will construct the finite di
mensional spaces of modular forms of any weight.\n \n \n \n\n\nhttp:/
